Behavioral Health

Child and Adolescent Psychiatry

Children at every age can experience unique emotional and psychological challenges that may require professional evaluation and treatment. Our comprehensive program features a team of professionals that includes psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, social workers, therapists, and counselors. Led by psychiatrist Narpinder K. Malhi, M.D., our team specializes in caring for children and adolescents with a variety of issues, such as:

• Anxiety.
• Autism.
• Behavioral or developmental problems.
• Depression.
• Disorders such as ADHD, learning difficulties, and more.
• Intellectual disabilities.
• Psychiatric disorders.
• Trauma.

Making the Diagnosis

Once we make a diagnosis, we’ll create a customized treatment plan that will help your child move toward a healthier future. Our goal is for our patients to function better in all areas of their lives — within their families, schools, and communities.

Focus on Strengthening Our Communities

Our comprehensive approach also includes a strong emphasis on providing support for children, adolescents, and teenagers in the community. Our staff works closely with pediatricians and school and community services to provide education, counseling, and support designed to identify problems early and to lay the groundwork for healthy social, psychological, and emotional development among children and youth.
